Barn Quilt Painting Workshop with Suzi Parron



Event Date and Time: 

Friday, June 2, 2017 -
9:00am to 1:00pm

Join the barn quilt movement by creating your own painted quilt block.  You will begin with a pre-primed board and go through each step—drafting, taping, and painting, with careful attention to detail. 
The workshop lasts about 4 hours.   You will leave with a finished quilt block or with one last color (which will be provided) to add at home.  The finished product will be two-by-two feet and is the perfect size for mounting on smaller buildings. 
Supplies provided: 

~Pre-primed 2 by 2 foot board.  The priming is a two-day job, which is already done for you!
~Suggested patterns ready to transfer (you may bring your own, but keep it simple— and be ready to draw it onto the board) ~Paint 
~Foam brushes 
~Colored pencils and other tools
